I'm running Cygwin 1.7.6-1, and when I use your command ('for F in ...'), above, I
don't get all the devices in your list (for those that I have). Instead I get:

```/dev/shm        C:\_0\dev\shm
/dev/stderr     \dev    ty0
/dev/stdin      \dev    ty0
/dev/stdout     /proc/4876/fd/pipe:[800]```

```What's missing? At least:
* ty1
* 2 HD partitions
* 1 1.5 TB USB drive
* 1 TB RAID 0
* 2 CD/DVD drives (one USB, one internal)
* CF drive
* USB 16 GB flash drive```

This is not earth shattering since everything (AFAIK) works (with either Windoze
or Cygwin), but what's the deal, do you think?

Thx,

Lee
